LIV Development Neighborhood Meeting Packet
Calvin Rasey and Chris von Allmen attended a meeting last Wednesday with LIV Development at their lawyers office. Here is a general overview of topics that were discussed.
302 Unit, 1,2,3 Bedroom Class A apartments
450 Parking Spaces
3 and 4 story structures on the property. Upscale, high grade finishes.
Average $1.50 per sq/ft month rent, or about 1500-1600 on average
No low income. Average renter is the young professional and baby boomers
LIV Development is based out of Birmingham, AL with local partnership with Rory McMahon (McMahan Plaza, Old Brownsboro Crossing)
Currently building the “Louie” which is behind the Wal-Mart on Chamberlain Lane bordering the Gene Snyder.
They have constructed and sold these properties, as well as held, depending on the location and performance.
10 Projects per year
Stage of Process
They are in the Pre-Application phase of the project which according to them, they will apply the week of July 19th. The pre-application process requires a public meeting which occurred on June 29th.
This project has to be vetted for feasibility by a number of different agencies surround requirements of construction and Planning and Zoning.
There is a case management review that is multiple rounds.
There has to be a second public hearing to transition from R-4 zoning to R-7 which is what would be required to build an apartment complex.
78% of the properties in Jefferson County are listed as R-4 (5 Dwelling units per acre). The city created these designations in the 1940s
Concerns were raised regarding the location of the entrances on the plans.
Current plans meet the requirement of an entrance 300 feet from a corner
Likely to move this closer to the corners as this would be safer for this project.
Alternate plan shows a movement of plan to offer a right of way to “Straighten” Springdale road in that area. The entrances would then face directly towards Gene Snyder.
The existing Springdale Road would be the responsibility of the City of Louisville to either close or make a Cul-De-Sac to service the one property on that section.
They did a traffic study and the current rate is 100 per hour in high traffic times. According to them, the addition of 450 Cars would not substantially affect this traffic on Springdale.
By requirement, they are not allowed to have any light escape the premise. Parking lights have to be contained to the property and light cannot shine beyond the property lines.
Lights would be a warm light
Lights would be limited to below 1.5 stories. This is for resident safety. No uplights would highlight the building.
Viewing a rendering, we could see where only the staircase lights showed above 1.5 stories. We have asked for a picture of like and kind properties to verify this.
Trees and Shrubs
They have requirements to install trees in the parking lots and around their development. They are highlighted as part of their plan.
A tree study has been made to determine the health of the trees.
Dead Trees will be removed.
Thatch under the trees will be removed.
Non – Beneficial (Junk Trees) will be removed.
Trees that are being kept will be uplimbed.
Shrubs will be planted behind the row of trees along Lovers Lane.
They are responsible for the runoff from their parking lots.
A retention basin is part of their plans which should help to mitigate existing issues at that corner and along Springdale.
We have asked for LIV Development to maintain an open dialogue and share information as they progress along. They have agreed and want to be transparent.
